How I Learned features writers, storytellers, comedians, and other raconteurs holding forth on a rotating theme during a night that will probably go down in history as the time of your life. The show’s been named one of “Five Best NYC Storytelling Shows” by Time Out New York. CBS New York calls it one of the “Best Comedy Shows Hosted by Women.” It’s also been written up in The New York Times, New York Magazine, The Observer, Electric Literature, Brooklyn Magazine, Tin House, Village Voice, Brokelyn, and Splitsider. Born as a monthly series on the Lower East Side in 2009, the show now takes place in Brooklyn whenever we’re feeling up to it.
